Bakery Bread Around Harrisburg - BHHS Homesale Realty

Our real estate agents are in complete agreement with iconic chef James Beard, who once declared that "good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods." Nurture your soul on Tuesday, November 17 by celebrating Homemade Bread Day at one of these wonderful bakeries around Harrisburg.

  • The Pennsylvania Bakery - 1713 Market St., Camp Hill, PA 17011
    More than 70 years of tradition are behind every loaf of bread that comes from the Pennsylvania Bakery. After emigrating from his native Germany, John Schenk continued his trade by opening his namesake bakery in 1938. His grandson Ken Jr., along with wife Michelle, opened the current version not far from Camp Hill homes for sale, but they use the same great recipes passed down for generations. Don't be surprised if you have to stand in line to get a loaf of that tasty pepperoni mozzarella bread! The Pennsylvania Bakery is open 6 a.m. - 7 p.m. weekdays and 6 a.m. - 5 p.m. Saturday.
